The Town of Spider Lake is located in the upper northeastern corner of Sawyer County, Wisconsin. The town abuts Bayfield County to the north and Ashland County to the east. Chequamegon National Forest, County Forest and State of Wisconsin Land make up more than half the town’s 108 square miles.  Numerous lakes (approx. 100) cover nearly another 9 square miles (with 109 lineal miles of lake shoreline). In view of these characteristics, it comes as no surprise that Spider Lake is considered to be an integral part of Wisconsin’s Northwoods.
